to locate MAXWELL and, If he is found in the city, place a spot check surveillance en 
him until ve can determine his activities and, possibly through his activities, the

Both of the above Individuals are Soviet Espionage Agents. ' , 

I pointed out to Mr. Brannigan, if MAXWELL left London, ,3/29/5^ j destined 
for Montreal, Canada, he was, in all probability, in Montreal at this time. We ' 
would endeavor to do everything we could to locate him, ,Mr. Brannigan Instructed,

in Atlanta until May 1953, when she went to work for

1953 ^nd resigned shortly afterwards. CORLEY said that 
after she quit this Job, her income came from' self- 
employment as an interior decorator.

not cover . her high living expenses.

through an introduction by AVERY JENNINGS, in the fall 
of 1953 in Atlanta, Georgia. CORLEY stated that at the 
time of this introduction he learned that JENNINGS 
apparently had known MAXWELL for some time, apparently 
having met him at an unknown prior date in New York City.

company, real estate developers, Atlanta, Georgia. ■; 

CORLEY stated that this business transaction involved 
the sale of thirty prefabricated houses to be manufactured 
in Austria, and to be shipped by MAXWELL as a broker or 
sales representative, to Atlanta, Georgia. 

CORLEY said a corporation "was to be formed for the purpose 
of engaging in this housing development and the purchase 
of the thirty prefabricated hemes to be supplied by IIAXWELL 
This corporation was to be financed by some unknown doctor, 
DAVID -L. STOKES, CHARLES GILSTEN, ED GRANT, ROBERT HOLDER, 
and M.AXWELL. CORLEY stated that there may have been other 
pei-'sons, unknown to him, who were in the proposed corpora- 
tion. CORLEY Stated that AVERY JENNINGS told him that she 
had been promised a contract to do the interior decorating 
on the houses supplied by MAXWELL to this new corporation. 
CORLEY stated that he, himself, was interested in the plan 
as broker In the sale of the homes. He identified the 
above persons as real estate operators in Atlanta, Georgia 
and reputable people.

b7E 

CORLEY said that two weeks after this meeting with 
MAXWELLj DAVID L, STOKES died and the negotiations fell ■ 
through. CORLEY stated that he believes JIMMY STOKES, 
son of DAVID STCKES, together with ROBERT HOLDER, have 
continued contacts with MAXWELL in regard to the forma- 
tion of this corporation. CORLEY said he has had no 
further dealings with MAXWELL and knows of no other 
information concerning MAXWELL. 

CORLEY stated JENNINGS considered MAXWELL to be a good 
personal friend, although he knows nothing concerning' 
the relationship of MAXWELL and JENNINGS other than as 
indicated above. 

CORLEY stated that AVERY JENNINGS had a very attractive 
personality and he considered her to be a loyal citizen 
of the united States.

now known as AYEHY JENNINGS WARNER, is residing on Fanton 
Hoad, Weston, Connecticutt* 


Enclosed to the New Haven Office is one copy of the 
report of SA SDWAID I* CASSINGBR dated 7/21/54 at Atlanta 
which sets out the results of the interview with JOH^ J* 
CORLEY. 


New Haven is requested to interview JENNINGS regarding 
her relationship to KAXWELL and for all Information in her 
possession regarding his background, activities abroad a^ 
in the tJS, and of course, any information regarding his 
political sympathies, JENNIES should also be interrogated 
regarding her knowledge of Dr. KURT WALLSRSTBINER, a business 
associate of MAXWELL. 


NY feels that it would be advantageous to interview 
JOININGS without her husband, EDWIN (WEINER) WARNER, being 
present as she may be more disposed to relate the exact 
nature of her relationship to MAXWELL. 

New Haven is requested to be alert to the possibilities 
of utilizing JEN- UNO S as an informant In this case and the 
comments of Now Haven are requested concerning this possibil- 
ity upon completion of the JTM.'IIIIGS Interview,

SYNOPSIS OF FACTS: 

Dr* W« H, 2INN, Director of the Argonne National Laboratory, 
Lemont, Illinois, was telephonically contacted on three occasions, 
during October and early November, 1954> by subject identifying 
himself as captain IAN MAXV/ELL, President of pergemon Press in 
London, England. MAXWELL asked Dr. 2INN if he would become one 
,of the editors of “Journal of Nuclear Energy,” published by 
pergemon press and backed by leading nuclear scientists in England 
and Western Europe. Dr. 2INN while in England in early 9/54 bad 
sxjggested to Dr. J, V. DUNWORTH# editor of the “journal of Nuclear 
Energy,” that leading American nuclear scientists be asked to 
participate in contributing material for the magazine. 2INN, 
after telephonically contacting other nuclear scientists in this 
country, advised MAXWELL that he and other scientists thou^t 
American participation was a good idea, but none was prepared 
to give definite answers at this time, shortly before MAXWELL 
returned to England on llA/54> be informed 2INN that upon bis 
return to the united states in about two weeks, he would probably 
make arrangements to personally discuss the matter with 2INN.v 
While Dr. 2INN is not acquainted personally with MAXWELL* he /' 
knows of no reason to question MAXWELL* s motives in contacting 
various nuclear scientists in this country.

the Argonne National Laboratory, Laiaont, Illinois, an in- 
stallation of the Atomic Energy Commission, furnished the 
following information regarding his telephonic contacts with 
MAXWELL: 


MAXWELL telephonically contacted ZINN on October 
29, 1954> identified himself as captain IAN MAXWELL, Presi- 
dent of pergamon press in London, publishers of scientific 
books and publisher of the new British scientific magazine, 
”jo\irnal of Nuclear Energy." MAXWELL referred to the dis- 
cussion that had taken place in Harwell, England, in early 
September, 1954» between Dr. ZINN and Dr. LAWRENCE R. HAPSTAD, 
Director of Reactor Dovelopraent, Atomic Energy commission, 
Washington, D.C., and the British scientist, V. DUNWORTH# 
Director of Reactor Development, Atomic Energy Research 
Establishment at Harwell, regarding the possibility of 
permitting the participation of leading American nuclear 
scientists in contributing material for the magazine and 
serving as members of the Board of Advisers. 

ZINN and HAPSTAD had learned while in England that 
the "Journal of Nuclear Energy," .which issued its first 
volume on October 1, 1954> was backed by the leading nuclear 
scientists in England and western European countries but did 
not include American participation. ZINN and HAPSTAD thought 
the publication of unclassified information in the field of 
nuclear science in the form of a magazine, such as the 
"Journal of Nuclear Energy," was an excellent idea, but 
suggested that the exchange of such information should be 
on a world-wide basis, and {they asked Dr. DUNWORTH why the 
United states was being ignored. Di*. DDNWORTO, who is 
editor in chief of .the "journal of Nuclear Energy," indicated 
that he and others were doubtful about united states response 
to participation. 

, ‘s. 

' ZINN did Hot see or hear^ of MAXWELL while in, 

England. When MAX\i®LL telephonically contacted Dr. ZINN 
on October 29, 19^, he indicated that pergamon Press and 
the British scientists affiliated with the journal had dis- 
cussed American participation in contributing material for

til© joiirnal and felt that they were now ready to ask lead- 
ing American nuclear scientists to participate in the 
magazine* MAXWELL wanted to know if ZINN would become one 
of the editors* ZINN said he would have to withhold his ‘ 
answer until a later date. 

4 

Thereafter ZINN telephonic ally conversed wi^h 
several leading American nuclear scientists and a day or 
so later when ZINN received a second call from MAXWELL*' 
whose Washington, D*C* telephone number was LI 6-6611, ZINN 
informed MAXWELL that after discussing the journal With other 
scientists, he learned that several American scientists 
thought the matter was a good idea, but none was ready to 
give a definite answer at the time* 

Shortly before MAXWELL returned to England on 
November 4* 1954* ZINN returned MAXWELL’S call at the 
latter* s request at which time MAXWELL indicated he would 
return to the united States in about two weeks and would 
then in all probability make arrangements to personally 
visit Dr* ZINN and further discuss the matter* 

I 

Dr* ZINN stated there is no question about the 
caliber of the leading nuclear scientists in England and 
western Europe supporting the Journal* Dr. ZINN pointed 
out that such a journal containing information of interest 
to scientists only, as contrasted with the- American 
magazine, ’’Nucleonics,” containing scientific '’ddta "for 
popular appeal, has been needed in this country, but that the cost . 
of publication, because of the lack of advertising and 
limited number of subscribers, has been prohibitive* ZINN 
commented that with pergamon press, an offshoot of the 
famous old German publishing house. Springer press, willing 
to finance the publication of such a scientific magazine, 
such as the ”jovjrnal,of Nuclear Energy,” he thinks that 
American participation is the sensible thing to do* 

Regarding MAXWELL. ZINN said he knows nothing about 
him personally* ZINN said that based on the caliber of men 
contacted by MAXWELL in the United states and the type of 
questions asked by MAXWELL* he knows of no reason to question 
the motives of MAXVfflLL in contacting various nuclear scientists 
in this country*

; rescai'ch scientist" and a muTti 
millionaire was accused ycsLcr-] 

^ day of illegal dealings with I 
Communist nations. 

I Dr, Kurt S. Wallersteiner, a 
: British .subject now living in 
■ Britain, was named in B'ederal 
Court here in a five-count in- 
, formation. It charged that he 

- unlawfully cn ported JIOO.OOO 
[ worth of chemicals to Poland 

in December, ISibl, and January. 

- 1952. 

I At the same time, Dr, Waller- 
^Lsteiner was indicted on four 
i counts charging violation of the 
1 Trading with the Enemy Act. 

He was accused of having im- 
ported quantities of .gallnuts 
‘ from Red China during the Ko- 
. rean War, Gallnuts are used in 
i the manufacture of medicine, 
ink, dyes and leather. 

The Government cannot force 
. his esltadition from Britain on 
the charges, 

1 In the information. Dr. Wal- 
^ leT'SteinCT' was cha i‘ged wilhnta.k-

Jney, said the scientist had 
[marked orval tar rives, used in 
manufacturing pharmaceuticals, 
for shipment to Britain but then 
had them transshipped to Po- 
land. 

Red Chinese Imports 
In the indictment, the Govern- 
ment charged that Dr. Wallcr- 
steiner had mislabeled imports, 
saying they had come from 
Germany when actually they 
had come froitr Red Ciiina. It * 
also contended that the con-| 
jtents were labeled as being] 
owned by an employe of Dr, i 
Wallersteiner, when they actu- t 
ally belonged to the scientist. 

Also named in the indictment 
by the Federal grand jury were 
the Watford Chemical Coi'pora- 
lion. formerly of 16 Bridge 
Street, of which Dr. Wallerstein- 
cr was president; the Watford 
Chemical Company, Ltd., of
